Charges filed against FFRF banner vandal Joe McDonald


Using the Pennsylvania’s Department of Justice website, I have gained access to publicly available records pertaining to the charges filed against Joseph McDonald – the admitted vandal of the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s holiday freethought banner which was placed on Public Square in Wilkes-Barre. [For more backgound on the FFRF banner, click here.]
